@Tech yes Im using Max 7 service pack 1

and I tried the Win NT server service pack 5 and still the same issue.

edit to add

I was doing a search on yahoo and found this
viewtopic.php?f=7&t=4320&start=10

So if its an issue with the video drivers I wonder ........do the people who are not having this issue have a card other then Nvidia or have any recommendations as to what Nvidia drivers would work?

I'm running:
Windows 7 64bit
3dsMax7 service pack 1 in the aforementioned compatibility mode, run as administrator and grant full admin. access.

I had some issues when I updated my display driver (ATI Radeon HD 5700) as max would hang on start-up, even if booting it with command line driver selection, all extensions failed.
I had to roll back the driver and then there were no issues.

The 'crash-on-exit' problem became a normal routine for me, re-booting the program between loading max scenes. I have to thank you for bringing this topic up, otherwise I may have just continued the same routine.
I'd be happy to help in any way I can. PM me if you wish :)

it would be nice if their was a way to disable the SendDump.exe
Since their is no support from autodesk it seems kinda redundant

I agree. That thing bugs me to no end.

BTW, I'm running Max 7 in Win7 using an Nvidia with driver version 331.82.

I did not get issue with max fixed yet I figured if it works and the issue is just a mere inconvenience it can wait a few days
however I did try and export and convert a simple age and got this from drizze. does any one have a translation I can understand, or a solution?

Error: Unexpected error in GuiThread:
Console: stderr:java.lang.NullPointerException
Console: stderr: at auto.Max.convert3dsmaxToPots(Max.java:35)
Console: stderr: at gui.ThreadedTasks$2.run(ThreadedTasks.java:29)
Console: stderr: at shared.GuiThread$InvisibleThread.run(GuiThread.java:106)

cuz I tried looking them up and these descriptions are all Greek to me

thanks in advance

The NullPointerException is just a very very generic error Java throws when it's trying to access something in memory that doesn't exists (which could be absolutely anything).

However, I had a quick look at Drizzle's code, (specifically in the source file containing the convert3dsmaxToPots function). It seems the line that fails to execute tries to access files in the folder: <somePathToMaxFolderYouSpecified>/dat/
Make sure the folder you give to Drizzle contains the DAT folder. Do not give it the DAT folder containing your PRP files directly. This should do the trick.
